MLB Ejections 10-11 - Vic Carapazza (1-2; NYY x2)

HP Umpire Vic Carapazza ejected Yankees Hitting Coach Marcus Thames and Manager Aaron Boone (throwing at ejection/warnings no-call; QOCU) in the top of the 5th inning of the #Yankees-#Rays game. With none out and none on, Yankees leadoff batter Gio Urshela took a second-pitch sinker from Rays pitcher Andrew Kittredge for a called first ball, subsequent batter Erik Kratz took a 0-1 slider for a called first ball, and third batter DJ LeMahieu took a first-pitch sinker for a called first ball. Replays indicate all three pitches were located inside and thigh-to-shoulder high; warnings for intentionally throwing at a batter were not issued and no batters had been hit by a pitch prior to the 5th inning, the call was irrecusable.* At the time of the ejections, the Rays were leading, 5-1. The Rays ultimately won the contest, 5-3, in 7 innings.

These are Vic Carapazza (19)'s first and second ejections of 2020.
Vic Carapazza now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Prev + 2*[2 MLB + 0 Irrecusable] = 4).
Crew Chief Joe West now has 5 points in Crew Division (3 Previous + 2*[1 Irrecusable Call] = 5).
